"A Beautiful Break!!"
My wife and I have recently returned from a week here and everything was exactly what we could have wished for. Clean, smart, modern, spacious and tidy and fully equipped with all your essentials, we found it home from home. Idyllic views from the terrace of sunset and sunrise. There was a fantastic “Things to do” listing that had been carefully prepared outlining places to eat, drink, relax, getting out and about and generally where to have fun. There were recommendations, websites and contact telephone numbers even local taxi drivers that spoke English / Spanish. There were fantastic restaurants, bars and beaches nearby. I would recommend this to families or couples looking for adventure, a beach break or a complete chill out. Will definitely be booking again for next year!!!!

"A fantastic retreat"
This was our 6 th stay in this apartment and we are already planning on booking up for next summer . Last year we took our 1 year old daughter and she had the greatest time, the apartment was very safe for her to run around inside and even outside on the balcony. Such a lovely place with all you need for a relaxing get away. The fact that we come back year after year speaks for its self. Thank-you once again for a great holiday.

Great appartment with an amazing view. Our first visit to this area of Spain and we found it to be a the perfect location, although la ot quieter than the usual destinations in Spain (not a bad thing) there is still plenty to do. Good selection of bars and resturants in La Herradura or in Almunecar. You will need a car. Will definatley be back.
